It's Time for a Breakup
Are you done with your Rosacea? Do you regret all the sun damage from your teen years? If only you could warn your younger self to take the time to take care of your skin. But, it’s not too late.
Break up with those age spots and broken capillaries, and discover the benefits of IPL Photofacials Houston residents can receive from this amazing procedure. Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Schusterman uses the latest Photofacial technology to give you outstanding results that leave your skin smoother, lighter, and with a more even skin tone.
What is a Photofacial?
Photofacials are designed to correct facial flaws with two popular light procedures: IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) or LED (Light Emitting Diode). Treatments are designed to penetrate deep layers of the skin, stimulate blood flow, and correct irregular pigmentation on the skin’s surface.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Photofacial?
Our goal is always to provide the best IPL Photofacial Houston has to offer. Therefore, in your initial consultation Dr. Schusterman will discuss the benefits of Photofacial treatments, as well as the best treatment plan for you. It’s essential to have a healthy attitude about your expectations as treatment results may differ for each patient.
Photofacials are ideal for people with the following conditions:
- Fine lines
- Spider veins
- Sun damage
- Broken capillaries
During your Houston IPL photofacial treatment, Dr. Schusterman will cleanse your face and apply a cool gel. You will also be given dark glasses to protect your eyes from the light. A light wand will then pulse light along the targeted areas.
As the light moves along the area, light pulses are absorbed into the skin. The Photofacial light soaks up the red blood cells (hemoglobin) and pigmentation (melanin) in the skin. As the melanin breaks up, it is absorbed, leaving the surface of the skin clear of any discoloration from the unsightly age or brown spots. IPL Photofacial treatments typically last between 15-45 minutes and will have minimal discomfort.
After your first Houston photofacial treatment, your skin will appear smoother and have an even tone. You are able to resume activities immediately, but it may take up to a week to diminish any redness or flaking of the skin. It is common to experience some redness, crusting, and bruising, but these skin effects will fade within the week.

Pain tolerance is different for each patient. There is moderate discomfort during the treatment. Some people describe it as having a rubber band snap on their skin, and others report it feeling like a sunburn.
